The College of New Caledonia Kodiaks women’s team finished their home schedule off with a win over the Camosun Chargers Saturday night. With the win the Kodiaks hold on to their slim playoffs hopes.
The Kodiaks beat the Chargers 25-20, 25-17 and 25-18. The Kodiaks dropped their Friday night game against Malaspina in straight sets 25-22, 25-22 and 25-22.
“We were really happy with both nights because we know that Malaspina is a tough team player for player. They are strong and as a team, they play well together. We knew we were going to be in tough and we were coming off our worst weekend we’ve had together. We did that and we played well with them. We didn’t play as well on Saturday night. But it was tougher. We weren’t challenged as much,” said Parker.
With four games remaining in the season the Kodiaks would need to win all their games and get some help from the rest of the league if they want to move into the playoffs, said Kodiaks coach.
“We still have one more weekend of matches. We don’t know what is going to happen with the other teams. It’s going to be tight now. The weekend when we lost to Fraser Valley put us in tough,” said Parker. “There is still a possibility. Next weekend we have to step up. We got four matches to play and we’ll have to make up for the weekend we weren’t able to travel.”
The Kodiaks will play four games in four nights next weekend in the Lower Mainland.
The Kodiaks play at Douglas College, Friday at Capilano, Saturday in Langara and Sunday at Columbia Bible College.
“If we come out ready to play and start off strong it will be great but if we don’t get off to a good start, it’s going to be a long weekend,” said Parker.
The Kodiak men dropped both their final home games in straight sets.
